Your Sunday swamp

I think the Alien is just about ready to pop out of Steve Bannon’s gut there at lower left. Either that or it’s some sort of handgun-flask combo.

Boy, the swamp, she’s draining now, hey?

So many geniuses. The best geniuses. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting pretty sick of all this winning.

    He looks like a sad, sad, bitter unhealthy man. And also like he has no “friends” anymore.

    Looks like a “six pack” abdomen to me. I wonder if it settles into a keg when he stands up.

    I can’t believe he’s of Irish descent. But, so was Bill O’Reilly.

    • Herb Clevenger Says:

      Me thinks you be mistaken laddie. From that picture, after serious study, I don’t see any Irish but do see garden toad. Well fed, but 100% toad.

      Man, is ‘Is Lardship ever backpedaling on the shit he was talking to Michael Wolff. His biggest fear, other than running out of Fritos, bean dip and gin, is getting booted off the gravy train like a common hobo.

      This is why I never talk to the press, and you shouldn’t either, unless you want to read your witticisms in print somewhere on down the tracks. Better you should talk to a hobo.

        These guys ain’t too bright it seems. And the Greasy Orange Turd is discovering that his previous tactics of non-disclosure contracts, lawsuits and/or bribes is no longer enough to keep his victims or henchmen quiet once he’s done with them. That’s gotta be a big chunk of what’s driving him nuts. Had to laugh about his comparing himself to Ronny Ray-Gun…the guy found to have pretty advanced senility very shortly after he was no longer prez.
        I figure unless there’s a real bombshell to make the likes of Grassely and Graham wet their panties, Don the Con will hang on until the 2018 midterms (I hope) switch the House and Senate control – and impeachment begins.
        Drumpf can fly off ala Nixon and leave Pence to play Gerald Ford with the pardon and lameduck role while the Demos come up with someone (anyone?) to take on Mitt Romney who will be chosen to save the Rethugs from extinction in 2020.

    I don’t know whether you’re familiar with the Goon Show from 50s radio (Sellers, Milligan, Secombe). Anyway, there’s a story told by Peter Sellers about the creation of the character Bluebottle in which he meets someone who says (puts on the Bluebottle voice) “I’ve just come from Michael Bentine and he says I’m a genius”. [ ]
    And now, whenever anyone refers to themselves as a genuis … well let’s say it’s hard to take them seriously.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Oh, yeah, the Goons. Big influence on Monty Python. And I always loved Sellers, whom I must have seen first in the “Pink Panther” flicks. “Dr. Strangelove” came later, but stayed longer.

      The idea that someone would feel content to describe himself (or herself) as a genius frankly boggles the mind. It seems a title to be awarded by others, yeah? James Fallows has some thoughts on this at The Atlantic.

      Thank God nobody ever accused me of being a genius. I got troubles enough. And I’ve seen my school transcripts, so I’m sure as shit not claiming the appellation for myself. I never even know what to say when people ask what I do.

      Writer? Seems a little grandiose. Artist? Not hardly. Just look at the pictures, f’chrissakes. I’m barely a cartoonist. Genius? Bwah ha ha, etc. I’ve settled for “rumormonger,” but even that feels a little swell-headed.

      I guess I’ll never be president.

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        But, you are smart.

      • Herb Clevenger Says:

        The best answer for the old “so what do you do” is to pronounce yourself as a consultant. That usually stops em in their tracks. Truth is everyone consults with someone. In my case it’s usually lecturing cats, grandchildren or visitors to the bird feeders but mostly I get council from those telling me what to do and where to go. Or, Patrick, you can also tell them you work for a non-profit (ain’t that the truth) as a fundraiser which usually gets them to run from you at the first opportunity so you don’t hit them up for money.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        Now that’s smart.

      • khal spencer Says:

        I’ve never heard an actual smart person self-describe as smart. For that matter, back when I was on a kollege fakultee, if anyone called one of us “professor” we tended to look at them askance. Humility counts for something. Even false humility.

    Off topic, or maybe on topic, is this question. Will a Georgia or Alabama player take a knee in the championship football game tonight? If so, will it run the dumpster out. Do you think Vegas is taking odds on these questions?
